I received the following text message with no punctuation. I won't replicate the link as I don't want anyone to mistakenly click on it. I didn't click the link as a precaution. The text was as follows:

Got a text message saying I had made a massive purchase and to call them on a different number if it wasn’t me. I checked the other number on here - the number is not known. Very dodgy! Hello - Your item has been held at our distribution centre. Please follow instructions: n7c.me/oaRVq
